Lou Reed is the debut solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in April 1972 by RCA Records, two years after he left the Velvet Underground. Lou Reed comprises eight new recordings of then-unreleased Velvet Underground songs, plus two new songs, "Going Down" and "Berlin" (the latter was re-recorded by Reed as the title track for his 1973 album Berlin). With increasing interest in the Velvet Underground, Reed's debut album was highly anticipated, but the result was a commercial and relative critical disappointment, peaking at only No. 189 on the Billboard 200.

Lou Reed's first album. Recorded in England with studio musicians, and even Lou thought of it as ordinary crap. However there are lots of good songs on the album. Songs wich he wrote when he played with the Velvet Underground.

Released just months after his 1972 smash hit Transformer, Berlin, Lou Reed’s third solo album, was a far cry from what most expected of the growing legend. Where RCA had banked on another commercial breakthrough (going so far as to commission Alice Cooper producer Bob Ezrin for the project), Lou delivered a dark, conceptual rock opera that lacked a single radio-ready single. Berlin follows Jim and Caroline, two drug addicts living together in the divided city of Berlin (which Lou Reed, notably, had never visited before the album’s recording).
